In an effort to ensure members are able to claim the royalty checks they are due, SAG-AFTRA has been working diligently with SoundExchange, the independent organization that collects and distributes royalties for sound recordings. Most recently, SAG-AFTRA and SoundExchange collaborated to find more than $2.3 million in unclaimed royalties for nearly 2,000 SAG-AFTRA members.
How do you know if there is money for you? Perhaps you have created content that is used on digital services such as Internet radio, cable TV music channels or satellite radio. If so, there may be unclaimed funds waiting for you. To find out, complete the SoundExchange free registration.
